Monarch (2)

Monarch (2)

Ultraslow doom metal from the southwest of France (members are from Bayonne & Bordeaux, in Aquitaine), with a female throat artist on the mic. They formed in 2002.

In 2005, they released their debut, a double CD with three tracks. Since then the band have released new albums almost annually; additionally, they have also released various EPs, singles and splits with Moss (6), the Grey Daturas and Elysiüm. Monarch have released with various labels, mainly with the Spanish Throne Records and have recently signed with US label At a Loss Recordings that released their new record, Omens.

Monarch have toured frequently outside France; in the beginning of 2010 they played alongside Wolves In The Throne Room in Australia, and in 2010/2011, Monarch toured North America, Japan and Australia.

Drawing comparisons to the likes of heavy weights Khanate, Burzum, Corrupted and the Melvins, Monarch are a unique band with the pure intent on creating blood curdling feedback drenched physical sound through the use of insane volume and low end frequencies, oh, and with a wall of sweet vintage amps.

Current line-up (2013):
Emilie Bresson a.k.a. Eurogirl - vocals
Shiran Kaïdine - guitar
MicHell (Michell Bidegain) - bass
Benjamin Sablon - drums (european tours)
Rob Shaffer - drums (us tours)

I don't know them before tonight, just seen them live and it was a great performance with loud drones, slow metal and a screaming girl... They made me mad. Want to thank them.
